Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has spoken out to support the UK staying in the EU.

Speaking in London in October 2015, Varoufakis called on Britons to vote to remain in the European Union so as to reform it from the inside:

 He said: “You have a referendum coming up. My message is simple yet rich: those of us who disdain the democratic deficit in Brussels, those of us who detest the authoritarianism of a technocracy which is incompetent and contemptuous of democracy, those of us who are most critical of Europe have a moral duty to stay in Europe, fight for it, and democratise it.”

Some commentators fear that Greece may reconsider an exit from the EU if the UK leaves the EU which could drag the eurozone economies back into crisis.
